    Only way for this stock to go back up?

    Or you take out the top two and it is approaching 70% for the remainder.

    Too many players.

    Are the barriers to entry that low?

    How about transportation?

    Rails are eating any profits that coal may have had.

    $10 to coal miner for Powder River Basin coal.

    $15 to railroad to transport the coal.

    Railway robbery.

    Not much competing capacity on many routes. Any price increase will be swallowed by rails. Coal will get only enough to buy tires, pay employees and keep digging.
